User experience

Passkeys flow from a user point of view
With Corbado, your users will login with passkeys using biometrics whenever possible. Apple users will be prompted to use Touch ID or Face ID, Windows users will be prompted to use Windows Hello, etc.
Passkeys and user experience
Passkeys are the most secure and convenient passwordless authentication. They offer a drastically better user experience than passwords, as they cannot be forgotten or mistyped. Passkeys are supported by Apple, Google and Microsoft, are synced within the respective accounts and can be shared via AirDrop.
For devices that don't support passkeys, Corbado automatically falls back to email magic links, SMS OTP or your existing password solution.
In addition to the email magic link, Corbado will offer to enroll biometrics for any device where the link is clicked. In other words, Corbado keeps track of all trusted devices and intelligently provides the smoothest login experience possible.
See what Corbado will feel like for your users with our Passkeys Demo.


In addition to an improved user experience, passkeys better protect your users with strong two-factor authentication in a single step. When a user touches their fingerprint reader or completes facial recognition, they are simultaneously asserting something they are and something they have. Biometric data never leaves the user's device, and Corbado relies on a combination of hardware-level security and public key cryptography to keep users safe. Read more about security here.
